Mary Lou, I saw it blooming in the display garden at Bowling Green this summer.  The hafts were overlapping big time! 
It didn't have the center stripe, but I'm going to guess this is a result of your weather conditions and it being a first year plant for you.  Strange things can happen.
About the low bud count. This can be first year anomaly also, but I'm going to guess the buds are there and just not visible yet.  About a week ago, I was looking at IMMORTALITY and shaking my head over a 5 bud count.  Yesterday, I found 8 buds on the same stalk!  Maybe you just need to talk tough to it!  <vbg> 
But not TOO tough! 
AAA is being difficult for me.  I bought it last year from Schreiners.  It immediately put up 2 stalks.  One got just big enough to open the terminal bloom!  The deer ate it during the night! 
The plant looked great until late spring.  Then it rotted.  Saved two small pieces, but they are sobbing while other iris around them are growing like weeds!  Even the Decadence one (down the bed), in the same condition, has grown better. 
No faint heart here . . . I got another piece this summer.  Different bed.  It looks happy!  Ah, I spotted a stalk yesterday!  I wish it had saved it's energy.  Could I see it bloom? Maybe!  But what will it look like by spring?? I hope it eventually settles in.  I really like the form. 
About my deer problem . . . the deal fell through on the two acre lot next to me and the real estate company let it grow up.  The deer are spending their fall there instead of grazing my iris blooms!  and pods!  I've got a really MEAN neighbor on the other side and he scares everyone away by threatening to shoot them.
